    Default Possible regression concerning Ryzen motherboards? AMD X370 chipset.

    I have an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard with a Ryzen 1800 CPU. More than a year ago I submitted a post concerning how to get lmsensors to work correctly. It may be found at: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...crosshair+hero
    To be concise, I added 50-it87.conf to /etc/modprobe.d (with contentsptions it87 force_id=0x8628), and a file called it87.conf in /etc/modules-loaded.d to load the module. malcolmlewis was of great help. This setup has worked quite well up until a week ago, more or less. I was always able to get info on several temps and fan speeds, as well as voltages.

    Apparently a recent update is causing an inappropriate module to be loaded before it87 gets a chance to load. I am getting very limited sensor information, and some is erroneous. If I try to manually load the it87 module, I am greeted with: Failed to load it87, device or resource busy.
    lsmod presents a very long list. I am unsure what module is reading sensor information. I would suppose that removing the module by force might crash the computer.

    It may not be connected, but I also see: "Failed to start load kernel modules" during boot. Or it may be it87 trying to load after whatever other modules has loaded in it's place.

    I would appreciate any help offered. Regardless of my forum settings, I am never notified by email of responses. I will try to check back often.

    Hi
    Can you identify the other module being loaded? If you remove the 50-it-87.conf file, do things start working?

    I did push an update to sensors, but that has only made it to the devel repo at this point.

    I am not sure. I did remove both module references from /etc/ with no change in results. I ran "sensors-detect" and the final output may help, keeping in mind that "it87 force_id=0x8628" seemed to work well before whatever change occurred. Here is the output:
    Code:
     Driver `to-be-written':
      * ISA bus, address 0x290
        Chip `ITE IT8665E Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)
    
    Driver `k10temp' (autoloaded):
      * Chip `AMD Family 17h thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)
    
    Note: there is no driver for ITE IT8665E Super IO Sensors yet.
    Check http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for updates.
    
    No modules to load, skipping modules configuration.
    Plese note that 8628 worked, but apparently 8665 is now being forced for whatever reason.
    Before the change, I had several CPU temps, GPU temp, and several fan speeds including CPU, motherboard fans, and GPU fan. Now I have a single CPU temp, a Tctl temp, and only the GPU fan seed available. There is a cpu fan field, but it is constantly at zero.

    Here is what "sensors" currently shows:
    Code:
    asus-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    cpu_fan:        0 RPM
    
    amdgpu-pci-0c00
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    vddgfx:       +0.97 V  
    fan1:        1067 RPM
    temp1:        +34.0°C  (crit = +94.0°C, hyst = -273.1°C)
    power1:       18.25 W  (cap = 130.00 W)
    
    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    Tdie:         +27.5°C  (high = +70.0°C)
    Tctl:         +47.5°C
    I am currently unable to follow the lm-sensors link. I am not sure of the link is bad or the site is down. I'll keep trying as time allows.

    I should have also noted that although removing the 50-it87.config did not solve my problem, it did in fact stop the "failed to start load kernel modules" errors during boot.

    Hi
    So are the nct modules loaded? Check via lsmod, if it is, remove and load the it87 one with your option, does it start working?

    If that's the case, then you woul need to blacklist the module being loaded and rebuild initrd.

    Hi
    Note I lost my iwlwifi one with recent kernel changes (my k10temp one doesn't work yet) hence my sensors update, so you might be in the same boat...

    I am not sure what you mean by nct module. I did a grep for it and only got "pinctrl_amd" which is being used by 0. I did unload it.
    When I try inserting the it87 with my customization, I get "modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'it87': Device or resource busy".
    If I try to insert it without specifics, I get "modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'it87': No such device".

    Hi
    All the modules (on current kernel) live down here;

    Code:
    ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/hwmon/
    What is the output from the command;

    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo it87 |grep filename

    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo it87 |grep filename
    The module does in fact exist in /lib/modules.
    The second command returns:
    Code:
    "filename:       /lib/modules/4.19.8-1-default/kernel/drivers/hwmon/it87.ko"
    So the module is there and is available, but refuses to insert:
    Code:
    Ryzen7:/home/ronnie # modprobe it87
    modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'it87': No such device
    Is it possible that the module has changed and does not see my hardware as being compatible? Also, I still have no idea what module is inserted that is monitoring my temps. If I run lsmod, I am presented with a very long list. I am not sure what to grep for.
    If it may be of any help, on the Windows 10 side of my computer, I have Aida Extreme installed. It seems to see everything. Here is a report from the sensor section of Aida:

    Possibly a little progress. I looked up the it87 package at software.opensuse.org.
    In the description, it lists many chips, but IT8665E is not one of them.
